With almost 450 appearances to his name, Martin will go down in history as one of the Club’s greatest defenders. 

After breaking through under George Graham’s side of the early 1990s, Martin later became an integral part of Arsène Wenger's double winning sides of 1998 and 2002, remaining a first team regular until the end of the 2002/03 season.

Now a respected television pundit, Martin continues to work with the Club and in May 2012 visited the Za’atari camp in Jordan for Syrian refugees, to officially open a new football pitch, as part of the Club’s global charity partnership with Save the Children.
